01 Mar Visit from MdL Alexander König
The deputy chairman of the CSU in the Bavarian state parliament, Alexander König, visiting iprotex in Münchberg.
We were very pleased about Alexander König’s visit in Münchberg and thank him very much for his interest in the iprotex group. After a good conversation our CEO Timo Piwonski praised Alexander König’s interest in the current situation of companies in the region regarding the COVID-pandemic. Companies in border regions such as Upper Franconia are affected by the corona measures due to many commuters from abroad.
“It is a very good and important signal that politicians are taking care of the companies in the region,” said Timo Piwonski.
Alexander König was also very enthusiastic about the long-term cooperation between iprotex and the University of Applied Sciences in Hof. A new project is already in the making: iprotex provides an 8‑meter-high radial braiding system for basic research to the university and its students. With the help of the braiding machine, 2.5D and 3D braiding can be produced with innovative materials. With great interest Alexander König also followed the statements on the global orientation of iprotex and the latest locations in North Macedonia and China. Alexander König was also very impressed by the latest product innovations, such as the textile bicycle lock Texlock and our space mesh, which is being installed in an ESA satellite as part of the Copernicus satellite mission.
